It may be cold outside, but that doesn't mean there aren't healthy activities to enjoy. Avoid cabin fever with these winter activities that are fun for the whole family.
Get Out in the Snow
As temperatures drop and conditions get icy, make the most of it and keep outdoor activities on the schedule. Building a snowman is an excellent way to connect and get creative, plus it's fun for even the youngest family members. Embrace the elements by sledding or tubing; that walk up the hill torches calories and works every muscle. Build a fort, launch a snowball fight, make snow angels, or explore a local park with cooler weather and less crowds. Snowshoeing and skiing are other great ways to get in a workout, and they let you explore the area in a whole new way. Whatever the weather, take advantage of the cooler temps and take your workout outside.
Amp Up Your Cardio
When conditions get chilly, sometimes staying indoors is your best bet, but you can remain active. Try at-home HIIT workouts (high-intensity interval training) using online videos for guidance. These workouts torch calories and pose quite a challenge, so you can set goals and work your way up to a stronger, healthier you. Alternatively, try yoga, dancing, or indoor cycling from the comfort of your own home. These workouts are short but effective, helping to build muscle, increase metabolism, and improve your cardiovascular health, so they're worth giving a try regardless of weather conditions and are easy to set up when a gym visit just isn't possible.
